Quote of the Day
"There are good vigilantes that hang bad guys and then there are bad vigilantes that hang good guys."
---Alan Simpson, former senator from Wyoming, talking about the Minuteman Project in an interview with Ruben Navarrette
Here it is in context:
What do you make of the Minutemen? Do you agree with the president that they're vigilantes?What he said!
I didn't hear all of it. Did he criticize them?
Not last night but he has in the past called them vigilantes and others have.
You mean in a negative way?
I thought that there was every possibility for that but it seems to me that since they knew everybody was calling them everything that they carried it off about as good as you could do considering they are vigilantes. There are good vigilantes that hang bad guys and then there are bad vigilantes that hang good guys.
